Starting dot makes it hidden... The % is used in UNIX for introducing
hexadecimal values of the character instead its graphic symbol (example,
%41 instead of A). I think these are the reasons :p

Thanks ... I should have guessed it would have been AppleDouble before
asking the question ...

However, do you know why '._' was chosen as the prefix for the
resource/finderinfo file when the specs for AppleDouble state '%' ...
